- Royal Birkdale
- Royal Troon
- Sonoma Shores
- Celtic Manor 2010 Course

The Simulator will be hired out by the half hour, so as a guide, a fourball playing 18 holes at an average pace will need approximately 2 hours.
Further courses can and will be added in the future, but we are sure you will agree that this is a fantastic variation of course types to play for now!
Throughout the Winter Months we will be running monthly Competitions on various "Course of the Month" selections which will cost nothing extra to enter over and above your usage fees. Keep your eyes peeled around the Clubhouse for news on "Course of the Month."
Driving Range / Practice Ground
One of the greatest features on our new facility is the opportunity it will give golfers to practice or warm up.
The Simulator offers a full Driving Range option where all of the Clubs in your bag can be used to work on your game or even to warm up before you head out onto the golf course.
The Driving Range not only shows you where your ball has flown to (with a variety of different camera options available) but collects the data that you will generate with every shot, providing important information such as average carry and shot length, clubhead speed, spin generated and much more.
This feature really is a great tool to improve your game!
Of course, as well as the above usage this will be a fantastic teaching tool for our team of Professionals.
The ability to hit any club in your bag, at any time of the day, during a lesson is an obvious benefit.
The data which the system generates for each and every shot will allow the Professionals to provide you with outstanding feedback on your game and areas where you need to do a little work.
You will even be able to see the progress you have made during a lesson before your very eyes as the ability is there for the system to leave a "tracman" type trail on the screen for every shot you hit during a lesson.
Club & Ball Fittings
The data and visual evidence produced by our new Simulator will revolutionise the way with our Members purchase golf clubs moving forward.
Members will quite literally be able to see in front of their eyes which clubs suit their needs the best as shot comparisons with as many other clubs are there to see on the screen in front of you.
No matter how many clubs you may be trying at one time the Simulator will differentiate between each club and as a result it enables you to choose the best Club for what you are looking for.
Looking for more distance? Use the Simulator to tell you which one you are hitting the furthest from an unlimited number of clubs. Want more control? The Simulator will provide you with the information on which suits you best!
Do you know how far you hit each Club in your bag? Is there a gap in your distances somewhere in your set of clubs?
The Simulator has the ability to provide golfers with the statistics for every club in their bag if required, enabling you to identify if there is a particular distance which you will struggle to hit a golf ball to when out on the course.
Simply book in with the Professional Shop and they will conduct this test for you and give you the results!
